Create with technology! Register now for Sónar workshops

Giving everyone the opportunity to get up close and personal with creative technology, Sónar’s workshop programme is a must for anyone who wants to make sparks – and sounds – fly. From making and coding a digital VU meter or assembling your own 8-bit pocket synthesizer to creating a self-aware network, Sónar workshops not only offer the chance to create your own technology, but you can take the finished product home too!

All Sónar workshops require separate registration and payment. Capacity is strictly limited and places are allocated on a first come, first served basis. Workshops are open only to Sónar Hong Kong 2019 ticket holders. A workshop ticket alone does not grant you access to the Sónar festival. No prior knowledge required.

Take part in SAN, an intriguing experiment about the future of architecture, by building a network that is not only self-aware but which can interact with its environment to create soundscapes.
